Reanaclaire Fried, Sauteed And Steamed

EACH MORNING AFTER WE HAVE TAKEN OUR FIRST MEAL, my girl and I will stop by either the shopping mall or the fresh grocery stall to do our marketing before heading back to our little nest.  And we normally plan out our menu the night before so that we know what we are going to pick up on the way back. 

Yesterday was no different, these dishes below were prepared... and one of them was turned out disastrous..
What happened?  I am still wondering... 
Each time I use this Amway wok and fry fish, it always ended up broken like this...
Anyone using Amway wok?  Can enlighten me on this? 
But the wok is good for vegetables.. got wok hei smell....
Cover it for a minute and the vegetables will be cooked... *just found out*
I didn't have enough garlic for my greens, instead there is a leftover lemongrass...
So what I did was... chopped up the lemongrass very finely to replace my garlic...
The result?  I will be buying more lemongrass from now on... 
I simply love the lemongrass fragrance and flavour on my greens!
Last but not least, the last dish steamed using the wok as well... 
Took around fifteen minutes... 
I miss my mom's cooking on this dish..... somehow she made it very flavourful...
Maybe I must add some shallots or garlic oil after this is done....
After all being said and done...
That was our un-presentable dinner.....
Still have lots to learn... especially on the Broken Fish...



  1. Better than me, mine will be no eye see...

  2. Rub a bit of salt on the fish before frying will do the trick as many people claim, how true?...I don't know too. Still look ok, just a little bit falling apart. I can finish the egg alone with the rice. Yumzzzz

    1. I did that.. seasoning with salt before frying.. I think this Amway one is different.. Saw the video just now.. heat up the pan hot hot... then put fish inside without oil... it is like baking.. next time I try...

  3. wah, this Reanaclaire very got "sum see" leh.. one meal that looks simple but then she has put in different types of cookings.. fried, sautee and steam, nice combination.. what about the rice?? haha, what do we call that way of cooking?? :p

  4. I am not good at frying fish and my fish also turns out like yours hah..hah...That's why I prefer to grill my salmon.

  5. Wahhhh!!! So fast! Just saw your fish on Facebook and it's here already. LOL!!!

  6. I bet it tasted good! Are you flipping it too much?

    1. No, I didn't... just dint know how to use the pan... hahahaa..

  7. The only wok that I can fry fish nicely is still the cast iron wok. I have tried other woks, even the stainless steel one and none can be compared to cast iron wok. Maybe I belong to the older generation and not used to the new woks. Lol!

    1. Will get one for my Ipoh home... that one at home is also going to retire soon...

  8. wah ...not bad leh...
    So, when are you leaving ? I am on leave next Fri.

    1. I see the next round ... this round I think a bit too rushed...

  9. I don't ind disastrous fish.. My salmon breakup like that too, I guess coz the flesh is flakey.. Else, I think coz not enuff oil, or you keep flipping.. I heard the secret is don't flip.. Fry 1 side, keep quiet, close the wok, after few minutes, open wok and faster flip to the second side, then wait, and slide out on the plate..

  10. Don't mind about the look of the long it taste nice..I would want to have additional serving of the rice with these dishes.

  11. Broken up fish is ok, as long as it is tasty! This home cooked meal look really delicious!

An Evening Dinner At Chef Chew Kitchen, Petaling Jaya

BACK TO SG. BULOH for a couple of days.... Come evening, we went for dinner at Chef Chew Kitchen in Seksyen 19, Petaling Jaya.  Since it was my first time there, I did not know what to expect except to sit back, relax and eat.  LOL... It is a one shop lot restaurant so tables are very limited.  Reservation was made at 6pm to be on the safe side, to avoid crowds and waiting for food was very minimized at this time of the day.  For the seven of us, these dishes were served on the table... Thumbs up even before the dinner...  And soon these are served...  Claypot braised ribs...  Their signature dish... Fish Maw...  First time eating fish maw which is whitish in colour...  Black Beancurd with Pumpkin sauce... Hey, this restaurant indeed serves new to me! This must be Sweet Sauce Chicken... For the American... Cos we Asians like Steamed Chicken like this!  LOL...  And the star dish of the dinner is this...  Freshly steamed and succulent prawns

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL...  Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch

Night Market Along Lee Garden Plaza Hotel, Hatyai

BY THE TIME WE REACHED THE HOTEL, it was almost dark. This time round, we took a longer rest in the hotel... my girl might not need it but I certainly did!  After recharging around 80% of my body strength, we were ready to explore the streets again. Our hotel is really a strategic spot for us tourists.  The street vendors were all ready to boost their sales in front, at the side and along the whole stretch of street where we stayed.  Left, right, front... the place was filled with people and tourists like us... I could hear some of them speaking my dialect, we felt kind of at home instead of being tourists.... Besides the street vendors in front of the hotel, there was a night market just five minutes walking distance away from our hotel, Lee Garden Plaza.... Maybe they only opened during the weekends?  I am not sure about that.. .anyway, we were kind of excited to see all the bright lights along the street.... Come... Let's Go! We started from the beginning of the str
